November 7th ~ Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver. 480 pages, published 2018
Willa Knox has always prided herself on being the embodiment of responsibility – so it’s unnerving to arrive at middle age with nothing but a stack of unpaid bills and an inherited home that is literally falling apart. Willa hopes that the local historical society might provide funding for its direly needed repairs and through her research into Vineland’s past and its creation as a Utopian community, she discovers a kindred spirit from the 1880s, Thatcher Greenwood.
December 5th ~ How We Got to Now by Steven Johnson. 293 pages, published 2014
Explore the history of innovation, tracing facets of modern life (refrigeration, clocks, and eyeglass lenses, to name a few) from their creation by hobbyists, amateurs, and entrepreneurs to their unintended historical consequences. From accidental genius and brilliant mistakes – How We Got to Now investigates the secret history behind the everyday objects that shape contemporary life.
